Charging Up

A report from Acadia Center, Conservation Law Foundation, and Sierra Club highlighting the programs and policies that some Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states already have in place to accelerate electric vehicle (EV) adoption in the region while at the same time emphasizing that to meaningfully lower air pollution much more is needed in each state in the near-term. This report makes clear that we need an all-hands-on-deck effort from government, utilities, automakers, and autodealers, and it lays out a full range of priority actions and policies to accelerate EV adoption.

The Future of Brayton Point

Acadia Center’s coal-to-clean energy concept for Brayton Point describes how large scale energy storage and combined heat and power (CHP) can revitalize existing energy infrastructure to integrate offshore wind, optimize the operation of the power grid, and drive diversified economic development in Southeastern Massachusetts.

Value of Distributed Generation- Solar PV in New Hampshire

Acadia Center assessed the grid and societal value of six marginal solar PV systems in New Hampshire to better understand the overall value that solar PV provides to the grid. By evaluating an array of configurations, this analysis determines that the value of solar to the grid – and ratepayers connected to the grid – ranges from 19-24 cents/kWh, with additional societal values of approximately 7 cents/kWh.

Acadia Center Reply Comments to NY DPS on Large Scale Renewables

Acadia Center reply comments in response to initial comments from New York State's Public Service Commission on the the matter of the implementation of a large-scale renewable program. Acadia Center supports a number of ideas expressed in the initial party comments and provide our own perspective on why private development of LSRs is most consistent with the state’s clean energy objectives.

Comments on DEEP’s Draft Weatherization Definition for Single Family Homes

Acadia Center's recommendations regarding CT DEEP's definition of weatherization in the statute requiring the state’s Conservation and Load Management Plans (“C&LM Plan”) to “include steps that would be needed to achieve the goal of weatherization of eighty percent of the state’s residential units by 2030.”
